Personally, my life changed, when I decided to accept the calling I felt for years, but kept pushing away and started to see my unconscious drivers, so I could choose consciously a different path.
In the pastI was always naturally pushed to create art, but I pushed it away because I thought you couldn't make money with art and so I chose to study fashion design.
I naturally was inclined to be passionate about spirituality and psychology and everything to do with that, but I never acknowledged it as something that meant I was supposed to dedicate my life towards a profession helping people. It was so obvious, but I took it so for granted, that I never listened! Until it was time to make changes, because of not finding fulfillment in what I was doing!
I then acknowledged my mission to help people and to go back to the roots and be surrounded by art. Life felt so easy all of a sudden, so light! It's crazy to think about how much it took for me to let go of the idea I should be doing Fashion.
This led me to help artists around the world to self actualize into who they were born to be and create what they were born to create.
me that mission was loud and clear as soon as I allowed myself to surrender to it.
As an artist myself, I understand the struggles of being different, seeing things differently and oftentimes feeling like a failure or not good enough. This is only because artists think and learn and see differently but have been pushed to fit into a society that is catered for non-artists, productivity and labour driven, mainly everything that artists typically don't identify with.
Now I don't want to stereotype, but I know that there are differences.
Previously, the world hasn't catered for any kind of Diversity and that includes Neurodiversity. It is not uncommon that artists are neurodivergents, which by the way is no disorder, but comes with struggles when not attended or not taken serious. I recently discovered that I am an ADHDer. Before I would just call myself a highly sensitive artistic person, which I would still call this way, but interestingly enough it was a liberating experience to discover that there are explanations for the way I operate, over which I felt highly guilty and ashamed of in the past, because of extreme procrastination issues, time blindness, addictions and other things, where the list goes on....
Don't try to push a square into a triangle shaped hole! Don't try to be someone you are not in order to fit into the world!
In order to thrive, you have to see the person for who THEY are and support them in that, therefore knowing that everyone is UNIQUE, while working WITH them, rather than trying to CHANGE them, is key!
That is why I am doing this, I am doing this for my tribe and that brings me joy, purpose and fulfilment!
